Years ago I viewed a documentary on the rise of the Religious Right in this country. They were taken lightly because of their extreme views. Their version of Christianity is that of dominionism (complete control), where biblical law supersedes the rule of law. Reclaim America for Christ! Now look at them, they have found their way into all positions of government, Senators, Congressmen--even the White House.
Maybe the Religious Right is good in a way; folks will open their eyes, realize their views are destructive and divisive and turn away. At the same time I worry the masses will fall victim to their twisted views of Christ and become like them, using the Bible as a weapon.
If the Religious Right continues unabated they will surely increase their numbers and rewrite the meaning of Christianity. Ignorance will prevail, gays will be persecuted, science and evolution will be subtracted to poppycock and of course, the wall of separation of Church and State will be torn down, as the Church becomes the government. Biblical Law will replace the Constitution and "this Crusade, this War on Terror" will spread in preparation for the mythical Second Coming. At the same time more progressive folks will walk away from Christianity altogether as Jesus evolves into a monster.
Will the real Christians please stand up?
